a brutal rape, a group of thugs - led by Scorpion - take refuge in the
home of rich Dr Oliver where they torment him, his wife Selma and their
small child. Like numerous other home invasion films, everyone braces
for a long weekend of torment and mindless torture. Eventually, come Monday
morning, Scorpion and the doctor take a trip to the bank for 'safety money'
[this was before the convenience of ATMs] while Selma and the kid are
left to the perverse whims of the sadistic gang.
to be a 'lost' film, here is an ultra-rare print of this Turkish
HOUSE ON THE LEFT clone. In 1974, it was released Internationally
under a variety of different titles (see top of page) due to an unusual
distribution arrangement with E. A. Parker's German-based VMP Company
DEEP THROAT, THRONE
OF FIRE, et al) which allowed each country to create its own credit
sequence, thus camouflaging the primarily Turkish production.
Craven's Last House on the Left had been released in Germany
the previous year as Mondo Brutale: Das Letzte Haus Links
[Brutal World: Last House Left] and so - due to that success and obvious
similarities - this one became Mondo Brutale 2.
Most European prints identify the director as 'Rowland Kramer'
but it's really prolific Turkish director Osman Seden. This was one of
his 160 films helmed between 1955-1991; his only movie to find an audience
outside of Turkey. Mr Seden died from a seizure September 1998 at age
